A couple of weeks ago we brought you some of the great shots that the team from engineering firm CastConnex were getting of the installation of the X-shaped delta frames at Allied Properties REIT's Queen Richmond Centre West (or QRC West) construction site. The three frames will hold a new &co-designed 11-storey office tower five floors above a converted heritage warehouse on the site. Check out the first two stories—1 and 2—for more details on this unique project.

Today we start with some recent shots courtesy of UrbanToronto Forum contributors Jasonzed and Red Mars showing the beginning of work to support the tower above the delta frames:

Next we have a real treat; CastConnex has now completed a fantastic time lapse video of the installation. The frames, designed by CastConnex, Walters Inc., and Stephenson Engineering, are one of those things that any city development buff can simply revel in, and be glad that not everything in Toronto is supercrazy weird lately: some of it is just supercrazy good.
